    I ended up snapping a shaft on the bird…  I’m not sure how that occurred!

    Well I finally had what I call a good morning.  Birds gobbling all around me, but sadly the only birds that came into bow range had beards shorter than my decoy and I could not convince myself to draw and release.

    The dilemma of hunting for the table and going for a trophy…  Those young birds are tasty, and you don’t need to cook them for a week to get through a leg!

    How many birds do you get a season?

    We can kill three a year, but I usually only try to take one because the wife will not eat it.   I usually just remove the breast and marinate and fry it up as tenders for me.

    Well huntedFriday and heard several birds gobbling, but no luck.  They all went the opposite way.  Saturday did not hear the first bird.  Two more weeks and starting Monday we can hunt all day, but wouldn’t you know it they are calling for heavy rain the next three days.

    As Alan already knows… I tagged out in NC on Sunday morning. Though this bird only had 1 1/16″ spurs he had two birds that total 14 7/8″. He will score better than my first bird that had 1 7/16″ and 1 1/4″ spurs. I am done for a couple of weeks until I head out to Oregon to try to fill a tag out in the great NW!

    Man I may have messed myself up for the rest of the season.  Went to set my blind up late this afternoon for a morning hunt.  Didn’t take the bow cause I had to be somewhere at 6 0′clock, well to make this short I got to the spot where I wanted to place the blind and a bird sounded off less than 100 yd. I dropped the blind and turned to get out of there and twisted my knee and could hardly walk back to truck.  Got ice on it now.  Hope it is better in the morning.

    Those are some serious hooks!  I’ve only seen one bird locally that had spurs that sharp and Rem270 was the guy that shot him.
